G-Droid 0.7.0 is now available on #fdroid . This version shows apps similar to your installed apps and apps you might also like. Give it a try! This is a new experience to browse apps of the F-Droid repository. #gdroid #Android
Another good thing: it does all these things without stealing your data to analyze it or do any kind of tracking. #deletegoogle 😍
Yes true. The G-Droid apk can also be downloaded from here https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.gdroid.gdroid/
G-Droid can do unattended installation (and uninstalls in version 0.7.1) on rooted phones. It will ask you. There is also a setting to allow root to be used
In the my-apps tab there is also a button to 'update all' which work well with root permissions. Without root each update installation requires 2 more clicks
But no, there is no service yet to check for updates automatically and then install them automatically
@gdroid When I tried G-Droid last it refused to install applications.
@gdroid what about the option to add "The Guardian project" repository?
@gdroid ok, good luck
@gdroid just checking the additional features compared to f-droid - amazing, I have been waiting for years for some features...
Why is f-droid no longer actively developed?
@gdroid can Gdroid be used alongside fdroid or are there similar integration utilities in order to allow automatic updates?
